The Importance of First Names!
We respond to our name throughout our lives. People associate us with our first name, it forms part of our identity. They help to distinguish us from one to another. Other people gain immediate and sometimes totally subconscious views of people, just from hearing a name they can therefore give us a distinct advantage in life, or conversely, a disadvantage! The choice of an Puerto Rican Baby name is, therefore, incredibly important. And those of us who choose a baby's name are taking on a responsible task!
The Origins of Puerto Rican baby names
The origins of Puerto Rican naming traditions include the use of place names, those related to mythology and history, origins from colours, plants and other types of nature, Fictional origins, historical origins, characteristic and religious origins. We then move on to the genre which can be classed as Descriptive, Place, Speciality and finally unique (or created name's) Placenames were used or added as a second surname, preceded by the word "de" or "del" ("from" or "from the") for example "del Monte" ("from the mountain").
What Puerto Rican baby name shall I give to my baby?
Will the Puerto Rican baby name suit my baby? Should it be traditional, unusual, unique, exotic, popular or cool? Will it be suitable throughout all life phases ( "A Name isn't just for a birthday - it's for life!"). Will it be appropriate throughout a full life cycle starting with baby - toddler - school child - teenager - young adults - parents - middle age - retirement and ending with old age. Will it suit a pensioner as well as a baby? Will the schoolchild be teased mercilessly about a name? What will your baby think of your choice?
